TPP: What's at stake for the U.S. and Mexico?.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP), an ambitious trade and investment agreement currently being negotiated among 12 countries of the Asia-Pacific region, offers an opportunity to deepen U.S.-Mexico economic ties without reopening the still contentious North American Free Trade Agreement for negotiation. It may also serve as a vehicle for advancing the current Mexican government’s economic reform agenda. The leaders of the U.S. and Mexico believe that the TPP will bolster domestic economic growth.
